That's another thing: we should be installing loader.efi as  
\efi\boot\bootx64.efi (as well as \boot\freebsd\loader.efi) since it's  
entirely possible to lose the Boot Manager entry and end up with an  
unbootable system as a result. Unfortunately people have had bad  
experiences with other operating systems overwriting bootx64.efi and  
don't believe we should do that.

Perhaps I just need to come up with a proof of concept or demo to show  
that it is possible without breaking other OSes.
